What on earth is taking the .400 & .465 H&H cartridges so long to surface? I got to thinking about them again after reading the .416 Ruger thread but didn't want to hijack that thread, so....
what I like about it is the easy availability of brass, low pressure, 5k ft/lbs. of energy and it'll use the same bullet (if I recall) as the .450-400 3" I just bought. That would give me a 4k ft./lb. gun (actually two, with the .375 H&H) and a 5k ft./lb. gun. All I'd need then is a .458 Lott or the .465 H&H to round out my all-world battery. I know I'll eventually want to get my hands on a .416 Murphy and maybe a .470 Capstick as well. Hmmm, then there's the .470 N.E. as a retirement gift to myself!
BTW Murphy, if I make it up to Fairbanks anytime soon, I'm gonna look you up and try and mooch a .416 Murphy cartridge off of you for my collection! Just thought I'd give you fair warning!
